Recently, I was given a gift certificate to a ritzy spa for my thirtieth birthday. For the past two months, I’ve held on to that little card with its elaborate curlicues, both enthralled and petrified by the idea of using it. As with…

When talking with any sane adult, one can reasonably expect a conversation consisting of a chain of statements stemming from a comparatively small bank of possibilities. One might not know, for example, exactly how one’s colleague will respond to a business proposal, but rest assured he most likely…

It's baseball season, America's favorite pastime, which means ballpark hotdogs, ice cold beer and the roar of the crowd… unless you are the mom of Little Leaguer. Youth baseball consists more of bologna sandwiches, luke-warm juice boxes, and the roar of the kid sitting next to you. Another season of…Continue

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.
These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

That's right, I decided I can not and will not play the part of 'playground' lady. I missed out on too many activities itercepting fists, feet and toy cars and I've had it. I was enlightened by my 22 yo daughter who is my right hand man,…Continue

Okay, so last week my sixth child was successfully potty trained, right before he turned 3. The big deal? This was the 3rd attempt at it, my attempt; you see it's not that Adam failed the previous times, I his mother who trained 5 before him and had 3 trained by 2, was too tired to stick with the process. He's not the first child to be a delayed potty trainer, his 2 older sisters( my younger girls) were completely toilet…Continue

First of all I want to make something really clear:
DO NOT EXIST IN THE ITALIAN FOOD TRADITION.
They have not even been mentioned once.
If you do have anything that looks like an Italian passport, well...for sure, you have never heard of them.

My Mother's Day this year was really wonderful, from beginning to end. Even when I decided I would do the anti-Mother's Day thing and force my husband to join me in cleaning our downstairs from top to bottom at 8:30 at night; isn't Mother's Day all about not cleaning? Well, since I never clean, I guess I just thought Mother's Day must be about Opposites Day or something. JDubbs was a good sport about it, though, even if it was…
